This work in the cubist style was made by Zadkine in 1922 at the age of 34 at the height of his artistic prowess. This endearing family scene provides insight into the intimacy of father and mother and their child in Zadkine's experience. The color palette in shades of gray and blue enhances the tender look at the happiness of this family.
